Week 12 - wc 8 June 2020

Welcome Year 5 to Week 12!

Well, the weather has changed a bit, hasn't it! Brrr! We hope you are still managing to have lots of fun at home! 

Here's this week's work to keep you busy:

My Maths

Following on from last week we are looking at the areas of rectangles, before looking at symmetry, lines of symmetry and rotation symmetry, before ending the week on translating shapes.

PiXL Times Tables

Continue to practice your times tables - 5 minutes a day is enough to make a difference!

Show My Homework Quizzes

There are two Arithmetic quizzes for you to look at. The SPaG quizzes are not set up as quizzes, but are documents for you to look at instead. We would love to see a score of 7 and above in the SPaG quiz and 9 and above in the Arithmetic ones... are you up for the challenge?


Remember to be reading for 5-10 minutes every day.


This week, there is a writing task based around the image of a man. You have 4 mini-tasks to complete and one big write to complete - this is a choice of either a story or a biography.

Science / Topic / RE / PSHCE

All the work for these lessons can be found on Show My Homework.


Remember that the Art project is a 5-week project. This week, you need to complete week 2.


This week Miss Granville has set us all up a virtual sports day for you all to have a go at! Join Joe Wicks for Week 12 of PE with the nation! 

Summer Reading Challenge

The Summer Reading Challenge would normally be up-and-running through our local libraries. Unfortunately, libraries have to stay closed a little longer, so the challenge has gone online instead! The website is brilliant - it tells you how to sign up, and there are lots of fun activities for you to do. There is a book sorter, which gives you recommendations based on what type of books you like to read. There is also a section to help you find books to read online, while shops and libraries are still closed. Take some time to sign up and explore for yourself, and get reading this Summer!

Competition Reminder

Avid Harry Potter fans will have heard that J K Rowling is releasing a previously unseen fairytale called The Ickabog. She is offering the opportunity for you to read each chapter of the story, and then complete an illustration for it. Winning illustrations will then be used when the book is put to print in November. If you are interested in this, look at the following website for more details:

We hope you have a brilliant week!

Keep safe, keep smiling, and be kind, always!
